I've heard that a lot of firms have not sent any word out post-CB. have others heard that or am I getting wrong information?

I know of offers from pretty much every DC firm that was at my school's OCI, but I also know of people at pretty much every firm who have had CBs but not dings. (This was more true a week ago than now). My assumption is a lot of firms have moved on to their wait lists and that's where the movement is coming from now. So, I'm guessing word is out at a lot of places.

Wondering about Akin Gump, Sidley and Baker Hostetler. Do you know of offers at all of those?

I have heard of AG and BH offers, although only through the grapevine - I don't personally know anyone with an offer such that I can verify directly.

I had a friend who turned down a White & Case offer which led (obviously this is speculation) to someone else I know getting an offer, which leads me to believe they are working off a wait list.

I also heard of someone who got a Covington offer late last week based on a CB last week.

Any idea if your friend is planning to accept the offer from White & Case...sounds like I'm below him on the wait list!

Any idea how long for dings if we're in fact languishing on a wait list somewhere (Sidley)? Been over three weeks since CB.

Any more Akin offers/dings? They are my last firm and at this point I'd just like to know whether I should accept another offer or not.

We're on a wait list. They're not making any offers till they get some movement.

Wonder if there have been any dings or if they're stringing even the no-hopers along...
